perhaps you are right.

but last year the Nets lost an early game to the Heat, but then they met again in December and by then the Nets were already in midseason form.


however, because of that slow start last year, the Nets needed two long winning streaks to get going.


I checked the schedule this year, and they end the season on a longgg road trip, and they also have a long homestand coming up midseason... but all of the WEstern conference powers come to visit.

All I have to say is that we really need to start working on our 3rd quarters.

i remember that too.

well as usual all i get to watch are highlights, but just going from the stats i'm proud of the way the nets did just enough to hold of the wiz in regulation, then slammed the door in overtime against a quality opponent.

wright seems to have had a pretty rough game, but this is just the kind of thing he needs to struggle through at times. and boki seems to have shot lights-out. should be great for his confidence since he seemed to struggle with that last year.

With less than 3 seconds left and down by 3 pts, I was close to shutting off the TV. But I remember Carter's 3pt shot vs. the Raptors. Sure enough, Carter drained the 3. Unfortunately the Nets blew a big lead (again), but they shut down the wizards in OT. I'm proud of the bench for holding down the fort while RJ is out. Good job

Vince has turned me into a believer... I love Jason too, may he be 34 forever.

i loved how Kidd reverted back to 22 years old and pulled out those Oakland street ball moves in the third quarter.

that buzzer beater shot was pulled into the basket by a magnet. How did it just stop on the rim like that...

actually something like that has happened to me before though the ball did not deaden.


i was playing a pickup game against the tightest defense ever in a casual game with friends. tied 19 a piece. i got the ball, stumbled a bit, was going to travel, so I jumped while the guy's hand was in my face and I launched the 3 pointer. but it was kind of flat, never had any leg strength to arc it, it hit back iron, spinned upwards a little bit, then softly rolled in.

though it definitely did not deaden to a stop.


(btw this was the leather indoor ball)

i didn't see it of course, but that sounds like the kind of lucky shot that can be produced by the new ball.

tough loss. tough loss.


but it was a back to back, and to fight and claw back and get a near victory, all the while keeping the starters' minutes fairly low is agood thing.




well, this one game is nothing to worked over about.



i have noticed a few things:


Hassan Adams is useless. Can't shoot a lick nor cut properly off a screen. he is supposedly known for his transition game but.. meh.. he's not showing anything.


Kidd is awesome.

I think Carter can lead the league in scoring, so far as long as Tmac and Kobe don't find their scoring touches.


is Marcus Williams going to be a scorer now?

anyway I did see him try to set up guys early in the game (though his passes kept getting picked off) but... well.. scoring is worth more than asissts I guess.

Nets are felling the absense of Jefferson very much.
The bench was almost useless tonight (except M Williams).

The bench played so poorly that the crowd was booing. Soon afterward, Frank brought back Kidd & Carter. It was an impressive comeback, but the Sonics offense was too good that night. Ridnour was on point with his floaters. Carter and Kristic scored well, but needed another scorer (RJ).
